I had the most positive hammertoe foot surgery experience with Dr. Mogul. I found the office staff to be helpful, friendly and very nice. Not to mention the Upper East Side location was perfect for me and the office is gorgeous! His staff submitted the hammertoe surgery request to my insurance company and called me as soon as they got approval. Amazing – seriously, who does that?! The surgery center is clean and again gorgeous. My surgery was seriously painless and I experienced no complications whatsoever. His commitment to being on the cutting edge of medicine with his foot surgery practice is very apparent. I can not write enough about him. I recommend seeing him if there is anything about your feet that you are unsatisfied about! This man can fix it!! ~ YELP

Dr. Stuart Mogul’s minimally invasive foot surgery center is one of the most established and recognized foot surgery centers in NYC. Led by Dr. Stuart Mogul, an internationally recognized foot surgeon with more than 30+ years of experience, his virtually painless hammertoe technique is a faster, safer and is typically a less expensive treatment for hammertoes than other surgery centers. If the hammertoes have caused the growth of painful corns, those will also be removed as part of your surgical treatment at the same time.

Hammertoe is a foot deformity of the second, third, or fourth toes. In this condition, the toe is bent at the middle joint, causing it to look similar to a hammer. Left untreated hammertoes can become inflexible and painful and therefore require surgery.  Hammertoes are caused by changes in strength of the small muscles in the foot, worsened by tight or ill fitting shoes and high heel shoes. The development of a bunion may also lead to a hammertoe deformity.

Hammertoe foot surgery is performed on an outpatient basis in the doctor’s Upper East Side NYC foot surgery center using a local anesthetic, sometimes combined with sedation. The hammertoe surgery itself takes less than half an hour to perform (depending on the number of toes affected). During the hammertoe surgery a small half inch incision is made on the side of the hammertoe in order to minimize scaring. A small portion of bone measuring around 3-4mm is removed and the tendons are rebalanced around the toe so that it no longer curls. Patients usually can walk immediately after the hammertoe surgery wearing a special surgical shoe. Minimal medication is usually required following the surgery.

Your hammertoe surgery will take place at one of our modern surgery suites where the NYC foot surgeon uses the latest technologies and equipment. Under local anesthesia, a small incision (about a quarter of an inch) is made and a specially designed surgical instrument is inserted into this incision. The entire hammertoe surgery procedure is performed through this tiny opening. At the surgery’s conclusion a small bandage is used to protect the micro surgery area. The entire procedure – including pre-op preparation and post-op recovery – takes less than 30 minutes.

Dr. Mogul performs hammertoe foot surgery on patients not only from around the New York City area, but from all over the United States and the world; if you are an out-of-state patient please follow this link for more information: foot surgery patients traveling to NYC.
